We have been informed by the Vale of Glamorgan Environmental Health Department that periodically the water at Cosmeston Lakes is not of an acceptable standard for swimming, especially in the area where ducks and swans congregate. We believe that the risk of contracting any infection or disease is minimal but competitors should take this into account when deciding whether or not to take part.
